alfred shorter jr is a major force to be reckoned with on the bass scene. His clear cut technique for bass comes from years of playing and experimenting with various approach’s to find new ways to open up bass playing to the masses. Book a lessons with him you will not be disappointed. -

One of the most talented musicians I have ever met. While trombone is his main instrument, he plays and instructs exceptionally well on a myriad of other instruments. He is calm and patient with learners and has a very rich knowledge base when it comes to musical literature and technique. I highly recommend Justin Hammis for anyone interested in private lessons.

"The first review was incorrect sorry.. Mr. Frixos is by far a great teacher. He teaches my daughter the saxophone. He is very kind, patient and really enjoys what he teach you can see that passion and how dedicated he is in teaching. I give him a 5 star because he explains it not only to my daughter but to me as well so I can help her. We enjoy his lessons and he has a great price for the time he teaches I recommend Mr. Frixos because of his knowledge and dedication to this field. He is a fantastic teacher.

I am still a little stiff with the computer so sorry for the earlier post that was incorrect you are more than a 1 star Mr. Frixos."

"Thanks for letting me provide a reference for Alex. I have taken alto sax lessons from him over the years, starting about 4-5 years ago. Alex is a great musician and teacher. Each lesson was consistently structured for: sound quality and listening, technical work and reading, duets, and improvisation. Rather than heavy music theory, he would instead provide routines to reinforce these concepts. He was always patient, and emphasized what I did well, with subtle redirection to correct problems. I definitely improved under his guidance and teaching.

The only reason I stopped seeing him was that my job became very demanding, and I could not devote enough time to practice and justify the time and cost of lessons. But even when I showed up unprepared, he was understanding and flexible to work with me.

If it would have been possible to have Alex come to me, I would have welcomed that."

"I had weekly lessons with Dr. Wen from Fall 2018 - Spring 2019. He opened up my playing beyond the notes on the page and helped me understand musicality. We worked together on etudes and pieces that pushed my technique, and playing the difficult passages was never to be at the expense of phrasing and musicality. From how to physically hold and play the instrument to alternate fingerings and phrasing, Dr. Wen improved every facet of my playing. More than that, he left me with the tools to keep improving. He will do the same for you!"
